New Membership Dues Category: We are also adding the membership dues category of Supporting Member ($100 annually) for those who wish to provide additional support to the association. Our regular membership dues will remain at $65 annually.
Special Series in ILR-Review: In an effort to help our members have more opportunities to publish industry studies related research, we have negotiated a forthcoming special series entitled ‘Industry and Organization Studies’ with the journal Industrial and Labor Relations Review. Authors who submit papers to be published under this special series will receive priority consideration as part of the regular journal review process. This will increase the publishing opportunities for our work and lead to better institutional recognition of interdisciplinary industry studies research in general. In addition, we continue to encourage members to take advantage of the Industry Studies and Public Policy department at the Production and Operations Management journal as a publication outlet.
New Awards: We are pleased to announce that the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has agreed to sponsor two new awards for the upcoming annual conference. The first is for the best paper presented in the Innovation and Entrepreneurship stream and would provide an honorarium and travel expenses to the paper presenter. The second award will recognize an emerging scholar in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Look for more details soon on the awards section of the ISA website.
